My Birthday!

Today is my birthday and it has been aninteresting day. I was first awakened by my daughter who was the first to wish me a happy birthday. It was awesome! I later spoke wih my parents and my brother and my close friends and that was great too. I remember a few years ago when i was at Warm Spirit i must have rec'd at least a dozen flower arrangements etc, our home was full and I felt appreciated in a grand way. today i received flowers from one of my best friends and my husband and that was enough. Imagine that, it was enough!!!!
The hugs , calls, text messages from my children were enough, enough!!! loved the dinner with my husband, it was perfect.
All of this to say, that I spent the day cleaning my home, fixing up the yard and front porch for christmas. I felt lots of anxiety about the holidays, finances, bills, my new company. but the work to make my home beautiful for my family helped calm my anxieties and fears. By the end of the day, I felt blessed and grateful. Grateful for my friends, my family and most important for a loving family and authentic friends. We all have so much to be grateful for and each birthday gives us the opportunity for another year to have learned and to grow and achieve more wisdom.
I am grateful for another day, another minute, another year of a blessed life. My promise and birthday gift to myself is to continue to live with an attitude of gratitude.
Much love,
Nadine
